    Yummy ! Even the kids love this. Better the next day or two. Skip the tomatoes add when ready to serve - 3/18/12

    I sub fresh from the garden chives in place of the shallots and added a small amount of garlic granules. I also didn't have cherry tomotoes so used a couple of large ones chopped into small diced pieces. It was pretty good. I do love my kale and this was my first attempt as raw salad with it. - 5/11/08

    I'm not a big kale lover, but it's so good for you & easy to grow that I try to eat it every day in the summer. I usually add it to other chopped greens for a somewhat traditional salad. I also cook it and put it on a multigrain flat bread with a squirt of lemon, 2% cheese & tomatoes for breakfast - 8/25/09

    I had to modify mine a bit (no tomatoes) and used chives instead of shallots. But THANK YOU! my new favorite way to eat kale! Even my daughter who hates kale liked it! - 1/12/16

    Very good! Made the salad and kept the tomatoes separate until served. May add some bacon bits to the next batch - just for some added flavor... - 1/12/15

    Can't wait to try this! I love kale salad, but I'm afraid my balsamic vinaigrette's olive oil racks up the calories! - 1/1/13

    I used Kale, Lemon, Oil, Strawberries, and Pinenuts. Mildly salted for a great savory sweet taste! - 3/13/11
